* AntiVillain: The Beast starts off as this. He acts malicious for the first part of the film, but he's not acting out of evil intentions as much as he's consumed by anger and despair at being trapped in the body of a beast while his chance to regain his humanity is slowly ticking away. The scene where he saves Belle from the wolves is the part that makes it clear to the audience that he's not a villain. Creator/GlenKeane, the lead animator of Beast, is quoted on this in ''Literature/TheDisneyVillain'';
-->"He probably wouldn't have minded killing Maurice. That was the extent where someone like the Beast, who had the potential to be good, could become a villain. The Beast was pitying himself, frustrated, so he felt justified in treating the father that way, and when he comes back, Belle is crying his actions do cause people pain and he starts to get a glimmer that he's not entirely comfortable with the role of a villain... He had incredible limitations it's kind of like taking the villain and the hero and wrapping them up into one body."

** After first being rejected by Belle near the beginning of the film, Gaston falls out her door into a puddle of mud. Instead of looking immaculate and poised as normal, his clothes and hair are a mess, and he immediately rages at Le Fou over his rejection, foreshadowing that he is a much darker and more serious character than his initial oafish JerkJock depiction indicated, and also foreshadowing how he winds up looking more like a beast during the climactic fight than the titular one.

** TheVillainSucksSong: Inverted. "Gaston" is all about glorifying the villain in question (though at that point in the story, he's only a [[{{Jerkass}} bastard]] and not a true villain).

* StevenUlyssesPerhero: Most of the Enchanted Objects are pieces of furniture that correspond to their original names, which not only means that their original jobs in the castle were well-suited, but that their transformations are also keyed to their monikers.

* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: For the voice of Lumiere, Jerry Orbach did an absolute dead ringer impersonation of Maurice Chevalier.

* SlidingScaleOfAnthropomorphism: The Enchanted Objects are mostly "cartoon face on top of an item", but certain details of their forms correspond to human features, like the implied noses of Mrs. Potts and Chip, the clock-hand mustache on Cogsworth, the "hair" of the Wardrobe, and the candle wax of Lumiere forming hair and, in the castle invasion, melting as if it were fearful sweat.

** The first stained glass window seen in the prologue has the Latin phrase 'vincit qui se vincit', which means (in a subtle prefiguring of the arc of the whole story) 'He conquers who conquers himself'.

** The rose as a goal for the father (being requested by his daughter), found at the Beast's castle and leading to his imprisonment once he tries to take it. Here, it's a magical time limit on the curse. The 2017 remake keeps both plot elements with separate roses.
